School-Based and Out-Patient Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy can have many benefits for children. School-based therapists and outpatient pediatric therapists can help children meet their goals and increase their success. In addition, therapists in each setting can work together to develop a unique individualized plan to increase the possibility of carryover of new skills to home, school, and outpatient therapy.

Plans can include sensory diets to help increase focus and attention. And fine motor and visual-motor skill-building tasks to help improve handwriting and cutting skills, and much more. Outpatient pediatric therapy can help reinforce school-based therapy. And help give the parents strategies to try at home to help increase their child’s success. Working with school-based therapists and outpatient therapists offers children more opportunities to learn, practice, and master new skills necessary for everyday tasks. Therapists work to increase bilateral coordination, fine motor strength, hand-eye coordination, body awareness. And reflex integration to help increase success in all aspects of life.
